The Kovac-Liska Series

This is the latest entry in the popular Kovac-Liksa series, but they are no longer working together for the Minneapolis police homicide unit. Detective Nikki Liska is now working the new cold case squad in hopes of spending more time with her teenage sons.

Detective Kovac is lost without her but learning to deal with a young, green partner on a new case; a brutal home invasion. An Asian studies professor and his wife were killed by a Samurai sword from the professor’s collection.

Liska is assigned a twenty-five year old murder of a highly honored sex crimes detective, and for some reason, his family does not want the case reopened and Liska doesn’t even want it. There is no DNA, which is the primary resource to help solve cold cases, but she is determined to do the best she can anyway, even while envying her old partner his new case.

This is a dark, gritty thriller but Hoag manages to lighten it up now and then with some black humor. A real page turner that is sure to please her legion of fans.

  1. Thanks, Staci, for another thorough review. I recently started following your site and am amazed at the number of books you get through in a week!

      So glad you enjoyed it! For most of my life I’ve read a book a day – it’s amazing how much time you have when you turn off the television! These days I need glasses for reading, which slows me down, plus I feel like we are in the golden age of television, so I’m watching more TV than I ever have. I read about 3-5 books a week now, and my wonderful reviewers take up my slack plus offer up their own unique perspectives.

      Thanks for writing!
